$50,000 Health’s Angels grant goes to AGE

Health's Angels
Health’s Angels is a St. David’s Community Health Foundation service group created to support nonprofit organizations assisting older adults and their caregivers.
Austin Groups for the Elderly (AGE) will be able to significantly expand its Durable Medical Equipment Program thanks to a $50,000 grant from Health’s Angels. The grant will help AGE recruit donations of gently used medical equipment needed by older adults, such as wheelchairs, walkers, shower benches and canes. AGE then gives the equipment to people who need them free of charge. These simple items can be life-enhancing and help older adults live more safely in their homes. Members of Health’s Angels selected AGE after hearing presentations from three grant finalists at their spring luncheon at Shoreline Grill on April 1. Health’s Angels is a volunteer group dedicated to serving the aging community and the agencies that serve them.
